Posted on Walmart's Facebook page:

I see you took my post down.

Every year, we have to see these sorts of offensive t-shirts in February and March. Why do you feel it necessary to denigrate and demean Irish-Americans?

Of course, we can always choose to shop at a store that pays a living wage.....where the staff do not have to apply for food stamps and other Federal programs.
Kevin Westley has an inventive solution to the annual issue of offensive Irish merchandise leading up to St. Patrick’s Day.
